Hi, You could have enlarged axillary lymph nodes if you have used a deodarant, done waxing or shaving in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> region. The most common cause of enlarged lymph nodes is infections. Do consult your physician - he will prescribe you a course of antibiotics. If the lymph nodes still persist , then they would need to be investigated further.
Are there any other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> nodes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the legs in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit area? Any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> in the groin or back legs? Any indication of possible dental issues going on? Hope you can find an answer and please keep us updated.
This was accompanied by a very bad cough. I also had a really bad pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>. I felt terribly ill and went to the doctor who diagnosed bronchitis, he said that I also had a nasty ulcer on my throat. As I am in the Southern hemisphere and it is summer, he said this was really odd as he hadn't seen any other patients with these symptoms this time of year. He prescribed anitbiotics but 4 weeks later I am still sick.

Ok, well I dont have alot of suggestions for u, but I wanted you to know that others share the same fears .I too have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gland</span>s in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit area for the past couple months. They seem to go up and down .. it is so annoying, painful, one day it is one side then the other.. I went to my doc they thought I was nuts ran my blood work complete CBC and was fine..yet they still are doing it at least I think they are. Feels like I have pressure under them.
Are they connected? Is it possible the lumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> are cysts and not lymph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gland</span>s? Is there something I can do? Is there something I should be worried about? Is there tests I can ask my Dr to do to rule out anything serious?

I felt a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> approximately 2 weeks ago. I cannot feel any lumps on my left breast, but it has become achy and numb in that area and it travels down my arm. I've had no fever, but I have felt run down lately. I have read that lymph nodes can become swollen fighting infection. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow - should I be worried??
7 months after the intercourse I have had small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gland</span>s mainly painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>, I also have them in my neck...Should I be worried? I do not have any other other symptoms but I have a serious case of anxiety..
Both of these went away the following day, but I now have a swollen gland in my neck, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> both on the right side. Also, I seem to have another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gland in my groin area on the right side bikini line. From what I have read from this site, it would be abnormal for the swelling to appear in multiple locations if this is just a sinus infection. Is it possible that the areas are swelling for different reasons? Could this be a sign of an STD?
are they <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gland</span>s, nodes.. or are they like some growth .. how can i get them to not be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> or removed.. i hoped this liptosuction would remove it all but i guess it only removes the tissue not the lumps themselves which are still there and very sore.. i noticed if i put alot of pressure on them when they hard they soften up and temporarily disappear and it is more comfort but within 20mins they return hard lumps..
How long does it normally take to resolve? And also how do you know if you have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> glad or lymph node <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> and normally does more than just one swells up? But thank you for the information that you have already given to me. I will have it looked at as soon as possible.
after 7 weeks i still i have random pain on my left arm and it seems that I have developed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gland <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit. I did compare it to my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit and it is deffinetly different. Also the glands in my groin get tingling from time to time and i have the feeling that my groin area is swollen. . I have no other symptoms beside the feeling of swollen glands the muscle pains and a general feeling of malaise. Are those signs that the body is fighting a viral infection ?
When I was about 18, I noticed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> pockets <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> each <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>. They are not identical. One is a little more puffy and is visible from the front, and the other is not as bad, and in th armpit. I went to the doctor for my college physical, and he told me it wasn't the lymph glands, but was 'fat sacks' or something. that seemed strange to me, since I was not overweight - at that time I was about 5'4" 120 pounds.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gland on one side of neck and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit along with a extremely sore right side of my chest my right breast and shoulder blade whats going on ?
Off-late I started feeling few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymphnodes in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> on both the hands. My doctor has asked me to go for thyroid scan and chest xray. I'm yet to tell him about swollen lymph nodes. Do you think this may be related due to thyroid? Please suggest.
When I felt it, my lymph gland area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> pit was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, no hardness, just a wide area that is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Is this something any of you has experienced? I am scheduled for just my abdomen and pelvis area for CAT, is this something that the CAT could pick up for under my armpit?...so that I should request that area done also?
there are lymph nodes in your armpits...maybe you are getting sick or have some sort of infection that has been caught in your lymph node. that is what people refer to when they say that their "glands are swollen." have you noticed anything similar on the back of your neck or in the other armpit? i am not a doctor, but i know that they tend to swell for me when i am getting sick.
It was worse on the right side leg. I´m not really sure if the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gland</span>s here were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, it didn´t really feel that different there. I also had a slight feeling under the arm pits and a thick fur covering on my tongue a lot of phlegm and a slight sore throat. It all seemed to be disappearing and getting better but then the other day I suddenly felt the burning sensation in my legs again and which subsided but then it all started under my arm pits and neck.
